Extends Soda's Monokai and the default markdown styles with additional syntax highlighting for YAML Front Matter, GitHub Flavored Markdown (GFM) and language-specific syntax highlighting inside GFM “fenced” code blocks

Although substantial changes have been made, thank you @aziz and other contributors to Knockdown, for the code for the fenced code blocks.

Get Monokai Extended for better highlighting.

Getting Started

1. Installation

Package Control

If you already have Package Control installed in Sublime Text:

  • Select “Install Package” from the Command Palette: Ctrl+Shift+P on Windows and Linux or ⇧⌘P on OS X)
  • Search for “Markdown Extended” and click enter.

Manual Installation

Go to Preferences -> Browse Packages, and then either download and unzip this plugin into that directory, or:

git clone https://github.com/jonschlinkert/sublime-markdown-extended.git "sublime-markdown-extended"

2. Activate this Language

After installing this package, open a markdown file and switch the language to Markdown Extended, using one of the following methods:

  • Select from the list of supported languages in your status bar at the bottom right corner of your editor
  • ctrl + shift + p and search for “Markdown Extended”

3. Make “Markdown Extended” the default

To make Markdown Extended the default highlighting for the current extension:

  1. Open a file with the extension you want to set a default for (i.e. .md)
  2. Navigate through the following menus in Sublime Text: View -> Syntax -> Open all with current extension as... -> Markdown Extended

Features:

  • Support for YAML Front Matter
  • Support for GFM “fenced” code blocks
  • Language-specific syntax highlighting support inside GFM “fenced” code blocks for most popular languages (see below for the list of supported languages)
  • Syntax highlighting for URLs in text which is auto-linked by GFM
  • Proper syntax highlighting for bullets and numbers in ordered/unordered lists
  • Proper syntax highlighting for bold and italics by ignoring multiple underscores in words

Markdown Enhancements

The following examples use the Monokai Extended theme.

Whitespace

Significant whitespace

Whitespace is significant only directly before and directly after fenced code blocks! Following these instructions will ensure that highlighting works properly and consistently._

This is very simple:

  • Add a newline before and after clode blocks
  • No trailing spaces after the last code block

If you don't, it won't break your code but it won't always look awesome.

Comparisons with and without proper whitespace

Whitespace before the block

You will need to keep a space above and below fenced code blocks for predictable results with syntax highlighting. For example, this is what it looks like when there is no space before a fenced code block:

This is what it looks like with proper spacing:

Whitespace after the block

Also add a new line after code blocks, but make sure that there is no trailing whitespace next to the bottom fence.

Supported languages

The following languages are highlighted inside fenced code blocks:

Note that in order for a language to be highlighted properly, you must have the language installed in Sublime Text.
